Reflections on the Readings All too often we fester in our own hurt, even when others turn to us for forgiveness. We may judge that it is better to preserve our sense of hurt than to free a repentant sister or brother from the heavy burden of guilt. Today’s readings show us that the graciousness of pardon outweighs the enormity of sin. They challenge the modern believer to focus on repentant sisters and brothers, not on the lingering malaise of personal hurt. The passage from Acts is part to Peter’s Temple sermon. The audience’s sin is that they were responsible for Jesus’ death. In calling for conversion, Peter refers to the ignorance of the audience. They are to turn aside from their evil way and turn toward God. Though the killing of Jesus is a serious sin, it can yet be forgiven. The passage from John’s first epistle shows that the secessionists (those who have broken away from the author’s community) have falsely claimed a communion with God, in spite of the fact that they walk in darkness. They deny their sin. The author replies that his community walks in the light and publicly confesses the likelihood of sin. Communion with one another means that the community experiences the cleansing from sin that Jesus has made possible. The gospel passage is part of Luke’s account of the appearance of Jesus to the apostolic circle. It consists of an appearance and instruction. In the appearance scene the household meal is linked to those meals where Jesus’ forgiveness played a central role. In the instruction scene, Jesus preaches penance and forgiveness. As Christians, we are not isolated individuals. Our calling is to imitate Jesus. To say “I forgive you” is to say “I love my community and therefore, I love you.” to reconcile is to profess that the Christian community is a forgiving community.

FORMACION DE FE Padre Ricardo, párroco (910-754-8544)

El próximo bautismo es el día 25 de Abril y la plática será el día 12 de Abril.

Hna. M. Teresa coordinadora (910-200-9209)

TERCER DOMINGO DE PASCUA El proceso contra Esteban desencadena una grave persecución contra la Iglesia. En la lectura de la Misa de hoy se narra su actividad apostólica y su martirio (1): En aquellos días, Esteban, lleno de gracia y poder, realizaba grandes prodigios y signos en medio del pueblo. Contra él se utilizarán los mismos medios, y casi las mismas palabras, que se emplearon contra Jesús: Le hemos oído decir aseguran los falsos testigos- que ese Jesús de Nazaret destruirá el templo y cambiará las tradiciones que recibimos de Moisés. Esteban proclamó con valentía su fe en Jesús resucitado. Y es ejemplo para nosotros -aunque el Señor no nos pida el martirio- de vida cristiana coherente: con naturalidad y claridad, sin detenernos ante los falsos escándalos, ni ante el qué dirán. Debemos contar con ambientes en los que alguna vez nos mirarán torcidamente, porque no entienden un comportamiento cristiano, ni muchas de las amables exigencias de la doctrina de Cristo. Debemos imitar entonces al Señor y a quienes le fueron fieles, incluso hasta dar la vida por Él, si fuera necesario, actuando con serenidad, llevando una vida cristiana con todas sus consecuencias. Sin duda, sería más cómodo el adaptarse a esas situaciones y estilos de vida paganizados, pero ya no podríamos decir que queremos ser discípulos fieles de Jesús. Estas situaciones, en las que tendremos que echar mano de la firmeza de carácter y de la fortaleza en la fe, pueden darse en la Universidad, en el trabajo, en el lugar donde pasamos unos días de descanso con la familia, etcétera. "En sus actuaciones públicas, los cristianos deben inspirarse en los criterios y objetivos evangélicos vividos e interpretados por la Iglesia. La legítima diversidad de opiniones en los asuntos temporales no debe impedir la necesaria coincidencia de los cristianos en defender y promover los valores y proyectos de vida derivados de la moral evangélica" (2). El cristiano debe rechazar el miedo de parecer chocante si, por vivir como discípulo fiel del Señor, su conducta es mal interpretada o claramente rechazada. Quien ocultara su personalidad cristiana en medio de un ambiente de costumbres paganas, se doblegaría por respetos humanos, y sería merecedor de aquellas palabras de Jesús: Quien me niegue ante los hombres, Yo también le negaré ante mi Padre que está en los cielos (3).

LA FECHA DE LA PRIMERA COMUNION ES EL DIA 26 DE ABRIL, DOMINGO EN LA MISA DE LAS 9:30 DE LA MANANA. FECHAS PARA EL BAUTISMO El día 12 de Abril, domingo después de la misa de las 9:30 de la mañana tendremos la plática del bautismo. El bautismo para abril será el día 25 de Abril. Los siguientes bautismos son: Junio 27 sábado, Julio 25, sábado, y Agosto 29, sábado. Las pláticas para Junio, Julio y Agosto son el día 21 de Junio. Por favor tengan en cuenta estas fechas..
